Carlyn, thank you so much for sharing this piece. I am so sorry for your experience and so grateful you made it out of that relationship.

I apologize for so much highlighting, but every single line resonated. As a survivor your story validates my own. Every time I start to wonder, was it really that bad, I can come re-read this and know, no one ever deserves it.

Take Care <3
